Can I paste a list of requirements into QFD Designer?

Does QFD Designer integrate with TRIZContrasolve?

YES. QFD Designer is the only QFD software in the world that allows you to directly connect your technical contradictions to the TRIZ Contradictions Table where you can evaluate hundreds of possible solutions. All it takes is a click from any negative interaction between design factors from the roof of your QFD charts and you'll immediately launch TRIZContrasolve to explore your exact contradiction. Any and all notes and settings in TRIZContrasolve are saved for future reference with your data file. And, with the network version, you can expand your TRIZ knowledgebase with your firm's proprietary principles.
